Eastward Ho

March 21, 2007

One more month in the desert of Tempe, Arizona, then we move east to a town in the Midwest near the Mississippi. We are overwhelmed with the move, with the adventure and excitement, with the details, with the unknowns.

    I remember moving to Arkansas. We came with one child and myself in an old Oldsmobile and Gerrit and the other child in an even older pickup truck with racks on it pulling a horse trailer full of our possessions. The bed of the pickup truck was rounded high above the racks with shop stuff and to top the whole heap off was an upside down wheel barrel. We had to look even worse than the Beverly Hillbillies. It took us two days to make a one-day trip and when we got to the new house it was late at night, pouring rain and the electric had not been turned on yet. I burst into tears and we headed back to Harrison to stay in a motel for the night. But it was the best move we could have made. We love it here and thank God often for leading us here.
    We wish you all the best in your move also. With God on your side, you know it will all work out.

    Thanks, Songbird. I think all will be well with us–BesoMami has a got a pretty solid call!

    I’m envious of you, Aunt Evonne. You and Gerrit have found your place in the world. We are looking forward to settling in somewhere.
